controls and constraints

These are formal and/or informal elements that influence and limit what the producer of a media work can and can’t include in a production. These elements may include political, technical, legal (including classification, regulations, censorship), ethical, financial, genre, audience, community expectations and time considerations.

The agreed procedures to be followed to ensure media work is produced respectfully and sensitively. For example, in the school context, permission needs to be sought for talent and materials should not be unlawfully copied.
